Segment ranking summary

Danish Agro is active in the agricultural input, agricultural products and commodities, and animal protein segment. While performing right below average in the agricultural commodities and animal protein segments, it shows a weaker performance compared to its peers in the agricultural input segment. Due to its lack of commitments, Danish Agro ranks at the bottom in all the three segments in the social inclusion area. In nutrition, the company outperforms its peers in the agricultural commodities and animal protein sector in its commitment to food safety. However, it lacks to define its contributions to address food security, thereby lagging behind its peers on the topic in all the three segments. Although the company discloses on key topics such as GHG emissions and deforestation, there remains room for strengthening its commitments. Further, the company sits in the bottom half compared to its peers in governance and strategy.
